Comment #: NY4474
Judge Duggan's went as far as to question if I was a man of religious faith in the "peoples courtroom". My attorney claimed it was the most unprofessional comment he's heard since practicing law. He's is smug and lack basic the compassion to be truly a leader in his field. My relationship with my only child was completely shattered by this smug S.O.B.

he took 25 minutes to review the case back to when it started, found unbelieveable mistakes by courts (not his court btw) and the majistrate, 5 minutes to bring it all to light and 1 minute to tell everybody to come back with a full explanation of details. Remarkable. Attitute wasnt the best but sure got his job done with no delay. Thumbs up on this Judge.
